Update

Every monday night, we have been going to Dave's softball games. Clay is happiest when he's outside and it's been fun cheering for daddy.


So, I have actually been doing really well with this sugar thing (suprised?! I am!) and I feel so much better! I have a lot more energy and my cravings are much less. There have been a couple slips here and there-like when I baked chocolate chip cookies for YW; I had to eat a little dough! But I have only eaten a little sugar like twice since I started this. I think I will try it for the month of June too!

Dave got me a grill for Mother's day and has been cooking for me a lot--it has been wonderful!

We are loving Colorado, but we miss our families terribly. Dave and I have had a lot more time just the two if us, which I cannot complain about! However, eventually we would like to end up closer to family.

I took Clay over to my friend Alicia's the other day, and while I was on the phone for 5 minutes she stole him and snapped these pics. She is so good! Thank you Alicia!

Aww...when are you coming home so we can see this little one of yours? He's gotten so big! Alexa misses him.

Clay is so so cute. The big eye thing must run in the family since both my kids have big eyes and so does Clay and your sisters kids too.

Deanna said...

Oh, my! That Clay is ADORABLE!!! Such fun pictures. :)

I need to do the 'no sugar' thing, too...you are inspiring!

Rindi said...

He is so cute. Very photogenic! That's good. Hey did you get that stuff for Clay's teeth? Did it work?

Morgan said...

I will say it again- your boy is BEAUTIFUL! He so has your eyes! I love it! And those pics are wonderful of him. I am sure you are such a good mommy. Hope you are loving it there!
I can't find those free workout videos on that website- HELP!
Hugs

Clay is so handsome!! I Love the pictures! It is nice to have some time alone with you husband, but I agree it is so hard to be away from family.

Let us know if you're ever down here! :-)

Love Heidi

Clay has amazing eyes, like his mama!

Good job at staying off the sugar!!! I need to follow in your footsteps. I did well for two weeks, and since have struggled. You have motivated me to do better. Oh, and Clay is adorable. Can Alicia snag Kel and take some pictures? ;)

Mark and Mal said...

Clay is so cute and growing so fast. Hope you are enjoying Colorado! Congrats on conquering your sugar addiction:) Hope all is well!

clay is so stinking cute!!! Your family is just adorable!! So, I really need to do the no sugar thing too. I would be better off without it. Maybe only allow it like once a week so I don't go nuts!!

Christy said...

Those pictures of Clay are SO stinkin' cute! Wow. Is your friend a professional!? Loved those. And that picture of you and Dave is so cute! You are gorgeous! Good job on your no sugar goal. I don't think I could do that... I love cookies too much!

What a little kewpie doll! Great pictures! You're family is adorable. Oh, and I don't usually have lots of pre-made treats in the house, so when I'm just dieing for sugar sometimes fruit'll do the trick. You can even make fake ice cream out of frozen bananas that isn't too bad at all. Good luck! Sounds like you're doing great!(0: P.s., I'm sure you've been told this before, but you're really gorgeous(0:

Thanks for the updates, I miss you guys!

Sarah and Trent said...

Hey guys! So...Trent's little sister just got engaged to DeLon Lee from Tremonton.

His Mom said she is good friends with your mom and you guys went to HS together...what a small world!

Cristi said...

We enjoyed living away from family for a few years so we could establish our own family, then it was time to go back. I'm sure you'll know when it's right!

Christy said...

Hey guys...we miss you and your cute little boy! We need an update! ;) Hope things are going well for you!
